“It is terrible and unbearable to an artist,’ he said, ‘to be encouraged to do, to be applauded for doing his second best.’ He said: ‘Through all the world there goes one long cry from the heart of the artist: Give me leave to do my utmost!” ― Isak Dinesen, Babette’s Feast (photo: 3 Great Writers and a Beautiful Actress: Arthur Miller, Marilyn Monroe, Carson McCullers and Baroness Karen von Blixen-Finecke (Isak Dinesen), January 1959).
wild-child Gia Carangi, who took the industry by storm.
